Abstract

A low-vision apparatus adapted to display an image of an object is disclosed. The apparatus is convertible between a folded compact configuration and an unfolded operational configuration. The apparatus includes (a) a base (14) adapted to support an object to be viewed, (b) a support (17) hingeably connected to the base (14), (c) a head unit (16) hingeably connected to the support (17) where the head unit (16) resides substantially above an object to be viewed in the operational state, (d) a camera (27) positioned on the apparatus for capturing a visual field including at least part of an object placed on the base, (e) a display (20) hingeably connected to the head unit (16) and/or the support (17) for displaying at least part of a captured visual field, and (f) lighting positioned on the apparatus for illuminating at least part of the visual field. The display (20), the head unit (16), the support (17) and the base (14) are adapted to fold relative to one another to enable the apparatus to be converted into the compact configuration.
